    TODAY'S SHOW: In part one of this two part episode, Douglas Tuman interviews Andrey Sabelnikov (aka Zoidberg) who worked alongside cryptonote inventor Nicolas Van Saberhagen as the lead developer of the first implementation of the Cryptonote protocol and who went on to create Zano — which can most simply be categorized as a privacy coin version of Ethereum.

    Andrey discusses the recent breakthrough enhancements Zano has implemented with its most recent hardfork, Zarcanum. They discuss many new concepts related to Monero and Zano including the concept of confidential assets and private proof-of-stake consensus, and the bold claim that Monero will one day become proof of stake. Andrey even mentions recent conversations with Nicolas Van Saberhagen regarding his take on proof of stake and Monero in general.
